Product Description
Produces large, perfectly shaped, sweet carrots, even when grown in clay soil. The 10-12 in. carrots have a uniform, cylindrical form that tapers into a blunt tip and a sweetness seldom found in carrots this large. Envy is among the best for fresh eating, shredded into slaws or added to stir-fries. It's also excellent for freezing, canning and cooked recipes. This adaptable variety is known for dependable heavy yields and the ability to perform well even in poor-quality soils. The seeds can be sown as soon as the ground is workable in the spring, typically around the final frost date for your area. You can sow radish seed together with carrots to mark your rows and conserve space at the same time. Zones 3-9. 66 days to maturity.
